On top of our primary group classes, we also offer 2 speciality classes members can take advantage of: Active Recovery and Pilates Happy Hour. Read the descriptions below!
For an hour you’ll be guided through a combination of manual soft tissue work, mobility techniques, movement flow, and relaxing breathwork. Perfect as a rest day or as a light day’s work for beginners and everyone in between. This restorative class is also great for non-CrossFitters and anyone who could use a little de-stressing love.
Saturdays at 9AM in The Annex
*Note that this class will finish at 9:50AM so folks can take group class afterward if they choose.
Pilates Happy Hour
The Pilates Method, as created by Joseph Pilates in the early 1920s, focuses on building your core strength, control, and stability. While almost everything in Pilates has some connection to the abs, in class you’ll focus on the position of your pelvis and spine in order to strengthen the core to support your back. For that reason, Pilates can be a great way to round out your CrossFit workouts, and get a bit of added stretching along the way.
